Slam Bolt Scrappers is a hybrid of Tetris-style puzzles with aerial combat thrown in. You control a person on a jet pack who collects pieces and assembles them into blocks to make weapons to destroy the other side, but to get the pieces, you need to fight aerial monsters and you have to wrestle them away from the enemy player.

I really didn't find much enjoyable about this game, really. As an avid fan of puzzle games, this was really a let-down, because the aerial combat is so much more important. You're not really given any time at all to strategically plan your board to get awesome weapon combos... even if you knock out your enemy, he'll be back in seconds to hassle you again. The only thing that might be worth it is the multiplayer, just for the fun of beating the crap out of your friends.

The graphics are cel-shaded and look alright. The music and sound work but aren't memorable. I used keyboard controls, and they seemed to work just fine. The only thing this game is really missing is fun.

If you're a big fan of frantic fighting-type games, then maybe you'll get more out of this than I did. I was really hoping for more puzzle-based gameplay from the screenshots, and I was let down. I certainly wouldn't recommend it at full price. If this looks good to you, wait for a sale.

Disclaimer: I was the developer of the Windows/Steam version of Slam Bolt Scrappers, so obviously I am biased. Having said that, when I first signed on for working on the game, I initially wasn't all that attracted to the gameplay, since mashup brawlers were not my thing, but I did love the visuals a lot. It seemed like a good fit for Steam, so despite me not liking the gameplay, I took on the project. However, I was very quickly won over with the gameplay, and now I love the game. It has just the right balance of "omg, should I continue beating up the opponent right now, or should I go after more blocks and building more towers/weapons??". It's frenetic and addicting and especially so when playing against your friends. And I still really love the visuals.

This was a nice surprising little game. The playful sound track and jelly like noises enticed me and had me from the word go. It's a very casual party sort of game. The game play is kind of like Tetris, you have different shapped blocks, that when you match them up, create "attacking blocks" that shoot at the opponents blocks.

You also have your character which flys around hitting other flying around enemies which turn into the blocks allowing you to expand your wall. After a few levels on the single player you unlock the multiplayer game which is where this game will excel. I for one will keep this game installed for the ure fact that it is so much fun to play with your partner or friends in the front room on the big tv.

This is actually pretty fun, even in single-player. Tetris meets simple beat-em-up meets match-4. You've got to play it to believe it.
